Connection timed out (Socket Fout # 10060)



Hi All,

Recently we have been upgraded from trail to commerial with a 1000 sensor license. With the trail-version I have no problems but when I use the commercial version i'm having issues;

Connection timed out (Socket Fout # 10060)

Also I moved the PRTG-system to a hardware-machine instead off a vmware-machine.

Can I have some assistence with my problem??

Did you get the Connection timed out error from some sensors or from the Enterprise Console server connection?

Sorry for the delay. I'm gettings these errors very frequently on the master. the slave is also monitoring several websites and when I get an error, i only see that this is partial. the slave has a OK. i don;t know why my master gets connection-timeouts. Also socket timeouts is also frequently.
